Mission

The Fair Haven School District’s mission statements reads, “The mission of the Fair Haven School District is to provide a strong academic foundation and to educate, challenge, and inspire students to reach their full potential.” Fair Haven is a walking district although most of our students ride their bikes to and from Knollwood School.

Clubs

Knollwood School has a wide variety of extra-curricular activities to enhance the school day. These offerings including Jazz Band, Glee Club, Orchestra, Peer Leaders, Stock Market Club, Debate Team Literary Magazine Club, a dynamic drama program for fourth through eighth grade students and many more. 6th - 8th Grade Students have the opportunity to volunteer for the Be A Good Neighbor (BAGN) program, which is to assist senior citizens with snow removal.

Programs

Knollwood School offers many before and afterschool extracurricular opportunites from the school level. Also, in partnership with the YMCA, an after school program is offered to provide students with the opportunity to develop social, literacy, reading, and writing skills. It also helps to enhance the student’s creativity as well as their appreciation of physical activity.

Teachers

Staff members have been provided professional development in our new Math programs, our new teacher evaluation system, Charlotte Danielson, & iReady which provides reliable growth measures & instruction for students. All of our teachers participate regularly in weekly PLC meetings to discuss student needs, curriculum, & assessment data. Teachers meet in grade levels & in their content specific areas in order to meet grade level expectations & to collaborate as a department in the middle school. We have also begun to emphasize PD in the are of wellness to ensure the whole child is supported and nurtured in our school district.

Supports

ELL students receive support services individually & are assessed each year to monitor their progress. Students w/ IEP’s receive services in class, pull out, resource room or self-contained programs. Typically developing students struggling academically are offered peer tutoring during their lunch/recess time and/or extra help w/ subject specific teachers before & after school. Students struggling w/ behavioral or social/emotional difficulties are offered small group or individual counseling.

Health

Incorporating mindfulness techniques and practice into the school day promotes health and wellness for our students and can translate into their own independent practice in order for them to regulate their emotions. We have received positive feedback from staff and students and will continue this practice. Students also learn and discuss the dimensions of wellness and receive the Lifelines and More Than Sad programs during their health classes, which address social/emotional learning. We have worked closely with our sister districts to ensure a collaborative and meaningful approach to this critical matter.

Parents

Our PTA is extremely involved at Knollwood School. Our parents volunteer regularly in our building and are committed to our 4th and 5th Grades as Class Moms. The PTA provides our students with assemblies through their Cultural Arts Committee, organizes Book Fairs, the annual Art Show and Arts Integration Program. Our administration hosts frequent “Coffee Chats” for the parents and the community regarding curriculum, NJSLA data, and information about our new programs at Knollwood School.

Facilities

All buildings have A/C & are well kept. Our Innovation Lab is a shared space with the Media Center which allows for our students to be enriched in College and Career Readiness standards as a Special Area.

More

Fair Haven Innovates is Fair Haven school district's 21st century life, innovation, and technology program. We use social entrepreneurship to help students learn the skills they'll need to be successful when they grow up. Students sell products and solve problems as they run real businesses that turn a real profit. Students use a percentage of the profits to give back to their community through their student-run charity FH Gives.
